2.0 out of 5 stars Mmmmmmmmm, 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not for me.
Some points in the book to make you think, and say interesting.
In MY opinion totally unbelievable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 14 Mar 2010
Good points
Fantastic sharp pics
Fantasatic sharp motion pics in AVCHD LITE
The iA function does all the hard work for you, and it really works.
All the scene modes work and do what they are ment to. (some cameras dont seem to make much difference)
The starry sky mode is brilliant. (must use a tripod though)
Really easy menu to follow.
Battery lasts longer than I thought, some of the reveiws I have read did not give it much of a good rating, but i have had the GPS mode off and not tried it yet.
The Manual mode lets you change Aperture and shutter speed etc, but unless you know what you are doing with them there is not much point.
The 12x optical zoom is very good.
Build quality is excellent.
The software provided does a good job.

Bad points
Hard to keep your fingers away from the AF light on the front corner.
The AVCHD "LITE" (different to standard AVCHD)video files are not recognised by the older editing programs, I have had to upgrade my "Corel videostudio 12" to corel videostudio pro x3.
Quite annoying that the price will rapidly drop in a few months, so if you can wait,you will save a few quid.

Fantastic bit of kit

UPDATE

You do get a slight clicking sound when you are zooming on video mode, and you can clearly hear it in playback.
When playing back the HD AVCHD movie clip on a large TV screen, you do get slight blocking, but still very good.
When you order a new battery, (which you will) make sure the model number of the battery ends with the letter E, IF NOT IT WILL NOT WORK.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sevylor colorado, 28 July 2009
Really pleased with this product, I must admit it is of a lot better quality than i first thought.
Tried it out on the River Severn at Bridgnoth, plenty of people commented and said they were impressed and had not seen anything like this style of canoe/kayak before. Responded well to a very strong current.
If i had to find a problem it would be the tricky valve (hard to get at)to inflate the bottom section. The two side sections are easy to inflate as they are the Boston type valve. The bottom section is the same sort of valve as an air bed type. when you take the air pump out air escapes till you put the stopper in, which makes it difficult to get it to the recommended pressure of 100/mbar. (But that is being picky) Packs down to the size of a small suitcase, and still room to put a footpump in the bag.
Storage for camping equipment is limited, a net bag which comes with the product which attaches to the rear of the Canoe/Kayak is a good idea but would be able only to fit a small tent or bag in, plenty of pockets on the back of the seats which i thought was cool, to store cameras drinks snacks etc.
You will not be dissapointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just an advert for exodus at MY EXPENSE, 8 Jun 2008
This review is from: Experience Kilimanjaro [DVD] (DVD)
Do not waste your money!!!

No information about Kilimanjaro!!

Only 12 mins lomg!!

Very poor editing!!

Two lots of sound playing over each other so you cant understand whats being said!!

Just some snob talking how well everything is planned by Exodus, (which to be fair it was) but i did not buy this dvd for that.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a Lot, 12 July 2007
I will be walking up Kilimanjaro myself in July 2008, and i got this book to give me a bit of inspiration.
It did no such thing, it was a VERY brief story of a man and a few of his friends going up Kilimanjaro.
No romance or thought at all,only one sentence describing the famous sunrise on the top.
The Author just went on how knackered he was.
And i appreciate it is a huge challenge and i have no doubt i will be knackered but if you are going to write a book of this once in a life time challenge, at least describe your surroundings and other a people a little more.
I finished this book in just under a hour.
